    Have you tried http://www.fitday.com/ ? Lots of peeps here use it. Personally I just go to the USDA nutrient data base http://www.ars.usda.gov/main/site_ma...ecode=12354500 for data and make up an excel spreadsheet...

    I just ran across www.bodybuildinglog.com/discussion/logon.asp

    You can log training, nutrition, etc. I haven't completely gone away from fitday yet, but it looks interesting enough.

    I like www.fitday.com. It seems like a pain in the arse at first, but once you get all your food plugged in, stick with it and it becomes a breeze.

    I stumbled across a great website, through an ad on here actually. Its better than fitday in my opinion. For me, anyway, it seems it provides a greater content of relevant info and is easier to use and doesnt require membership.

    www.nutritiondata.com . One neat feature is the macronutrient demo of fast foods. Click on your fave place, say Subway, and a big list comes up that will show you in full detail the info for each thing. Here's an example if someone wants an easy link:

    Fitday.com - quickest/fastest

    Nutritiondata.com - gives very detailed nutritional information

    Nutridiary.com - lets you make up MEALS and combinations of foods, as well as single foods themselves. This is great if you eat the same meals everyday. You can also adjust to make slight changes to your menu. Then you just add the 5 meals or so. So it takes a little bit of time at first, but ends up quite efficient.

    I hate how a lot of these programs require people to pay. I'm a hardcore online pirate and I'm gonna try my hardest to get the programs. Once I come across the programs (yes, they will be *free*), then I will post a link to let all of you know. But, of course, I won't be able to post any links due to copyright laws and such.
